    Patricia Gorak-Stolinska

    Vaccine 24:5726-33. 2006
    ..There was no evidence of a difference in immunogenicity (IFN-gamma and DTH conversion rates) but evidence of lower reactogenicity (scar size) with Danish-SSI 1331 compared to Glaxo-Evans 1077 vaccines...
  3. pmc Population differences in immune responses to Bacille Calmette-Guérin vaccination in infancy
    Maeve K Lalor
    Immunology Unit, Department of Infectious and Tropical Diseases, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, United Kingdom
    J Infect Dis 199:795-800. 2009
    ..We conclude that population differences in immune responses after BCG vaccination are observed among infants, as well as among young adults...

    Maeve K Lalor
    Department of Immunology and Infection, Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 6:e16709. 2011
    ..This study objective was to determine if there was an association between circulating 25(OH)D concentrations and BCG vaccination status and cytokine responses following BCG vaccination in infants...
  5. pmc Complex cytokine profiles induced by BCG vaccination in UK infants
    Maeve K Lalor
    Immunology Unit, Department of Infectious and Tropical Diseases, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Keppel Street, London WC1E 7HT, UK
    Vaccine 28:1635-41. 2010
    ..The pattern of cytokine induction following BCG vaccination is complex and measurement of one of two cytokines does not reveal the whole picture of vaccine-induced protection...

    Rosemary E Weir
    Department of Infectious and Tropical Diseases, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Keppel Street, London WC1E 7HT, UK
    Tuberculosis (Edinb) 88:31-8. 2008
    ..We therefore conclude that Mtb PPD is the antigen preparation of choice for assessing the immunogenicity of BCG vaccination...

    Infect Immun 72:1807-11. 2004
    ..Priming for regulatory IL-10 may contribute to the smaller increase in gamma interferon responses in Malawians compared to United Kingdom subjects following BCG vaccination...

    Victoria J Wright
    Department of Infectious and Tropical Diseases, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, United Kingdom
    PLoS Negl Trop Dis 3:e433. 2009
    ..Thus the effect of deworming in this age group on anaemia and wasting malnutrition, which were replicated in this study, could not be explained by modification of cytokine responses but may be related to eosinophil function...
